snowboarderblahblah post some pics and we can see how its blowing through rubber. First signs if abnormal tire wear always get an alignment.

It all depends on what misaligned it in the first place.

It's possible someone just put the stock struts back on and didn't get an alignment afterward before trading it in/selling it. It would take something ridiculous to knock it that far out of wack to where it would eat tires like that.

Alright, I can't figure out how to post the report here. Send me your email and I can forward it to you.
